Young Girl Can Hear – level 2

13-10-2017 07:00

A girl was born without an ear canal in her left ear. Since she could not hear very well, she could not acquire language properly. It was very hard to understand her.

At five years old, she is the youngest person ever to get an inner ear implant. Her doctor explained that the implant is small and placed behind the ear and under the skin where it can directly help the inner ear to take sound into the ear.

The girl’s mother said that people can understand her better now, and the girl said that she cannot name all of the things that she can hear now. She was pretty amazed!

Difficult words: acquire (learn), inner ear (the part of the ear where sound moves so that you can hear sound), implant (a thing that people add into the body), ear canal (the opening inside the ear).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
